KEEP ON SINGING. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 28 October 1914

I ■ I KEEP ON SINGING. When trouble comes, don't let despair Add to the burden you must bear, But keep up heart and, smiling, say, "The darkest cloud must pass away." Don't say, "Why is it?" .with a. frown, And go with. heart and head bowed down, But lift them both, and, let your eyes Behold the sunshine in the skies. Don't sit and'brood o'er things gone wrong, But sing a hopeful, helpful song; Or, whistle something light and gay, And thus drive half your care's away. Sing of the pleasant things life knows; Not of the thorns, but of the rose. Each life knows some joy every day, Sure as December leads to May. 'Tis he who sings when trouble's here From trouble has not much, to fear; Since it will, never tarry long When stout heart -meets it with a song. But brood o'er care, and we can make This life a burden that will break The stoutest back. But sing, and lo! The load is lifted. Let it go! Then don't forget when things go wrong To try the magic of a song. For cheerful heart and smili...

Suckers, 12s to 16s ; undersized, from 4s 6d ; slips, 20s to 25s.

THE VIGIL. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 28 October 1914

THE VIGIL. England! where the sacred flame Burns before the inmost shrine, Where the lips that love thy name Consecrate their hopes and thine, Where the banners of thy dead Weave their shadows overhead, Watch beside thine arms to-night, Pray that God defend the Right. Think that when to-morrow comes War shall claim command of all, Thou must hear the roll of drums, Thou must hear the trumpet's eal!. Now before they silence ruth, Commune with the voice of truth; England! on thy knees to-night Pray that God defend the Right. Single-hearted, unafraid, Hither all thy heroes came, On this altar's steps were laid Gordon's life and Outram's fame. England! if thy will be yet By their great example set, Here beside thine arms to-night Pray that God defend the Right. So shalt thou when morning comes Rise to conquer or to fall, Joyful hear the rolling drums, Joyful hear the trumpets call Then let Memory tell thy heart: "England! what thou wert, thou art!" Gird thee with thine ancient might, For...

SOME OLD STANDBYS. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 28 October 1914

SOME OLD STANDB.YS. • We hasten to "assure. Be that as it'-may,-'-"- ' • This does not mean necessarily. Permit us to call attention to. We are compelled to state. Nothing is more vital. It is true tha;t—but still, admitting. The italics1 are ours. Nothing is more certain than-that. It is unnecessary for us to add. We freely grant. It ought to be obvious to anyone. We are rapidly approaching a crisis. It is of the first importance to. In our humble opinion. It cannot be too often emphasised. We are appalled to thinlc. It is a matter of comment that. But why proceed any further along these lines? Enough has been said to convince. "Lagani-Namo" has another "tall'' one in the "Bully": The flighty wife of to-day occasionally tries some pret ty impossible stories, but a Papuaa wife in the hazy long-ago invented an excuse that beats the massed bands. It appears that this woman had gone into the jungle with the expressed in tention of getting pandanus palm fronds for the thatch of her domi...

Fumina. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 28 October 1914

Fumina. Mr Robert Smith, of this district, reports having established a good Btand . of lucerne. He experimented with a few pounds of seed last year, and so prolific was the growth that he has extended his experiment still further. This should prove an .object lesson to others, and if this king of fodders can be grown here the problem of settlement will be solved. The variety grown by Mr Smith is Hunter River, and after catting it made the phenomenal growth of three feet in six weeks, and this without artificial watering- It is not contended that all Fumina lands are of equal quality. It is made up of poor, light and good land, and the people who have selected it and-gone to work in the right way have proved that it can support a population. It has had peculiar diffi culties to contend with. The long road journey to a railway station, and this, intensified by steep grades, has proved a great drawback to rapid pro gress. Production has been limited, and only such products as could be...

FARM HANDS OFFERED BRIDES. Five girls as wives were offered as bait for harvesters by Ambrose Hun tington, who owns a farm near Gilt ner; Nebraska. Huntington had the following signboard posted on the highway in front of his house:— "I need five harvest hands for more than a month. Wages 12s. a day, chicken onc6 a day; washing, mend ing and a bed in the hay mow. Every worthy young man hired will have a chance to marry one of my five pret ty daughters. If he wins one of them, he gets 160 acres of land thrown in. But he's got to make good in more ways than one." Fifty-three candidates for employ ment and prospective ' matrimony ap plied within a week. The five chosen ones were put to work in the wheat fields. The girls range in age from IS to 26.

SALVATIONISTS' PRAYER. SMITE SWIFTLY, LORD! [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 28 October 1914

SALVATIONISTS' PRAYER. SMITE SWIFTLY, LORD! Commissioner Hay, of the Salva tion Army, speaking to an audience about the war, said the Salvationists would pray God to smite swiftly and bring everlasting peace. Smite swiftly, Lord; this painful earth is torn With hate. Its wounds are red and gaping wide. Fierce night is /followed by a fiercer morn, Where crazy monarchs, drunken mad with pride, Have sought the evil counsel of the sword. Smite swiftly, Lord. Wan women face a harder fate than death. Can loud-mouthed cannon drown their silent prayer? Assyrian hosts were withered by the breath Of Thy Great Angel, borne upon the air. Oh, now; at all barbaric Prussia's horde, Smite swiftly, Lord. The shattered roof-tree, falling in tho flame, Where orphaned babies fill the world with cries, Makes mockery the worship of Thy Name; And saints see dimly through their streaming eyes Those tender bodies by the bayonets scored. Smite swiftly, Lord. Two thousand years ago the world • was drenched Wi...

LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 28 October 1914

LADIES' LETTER, i | , - - I Sir Gawaine George Stuart Baillie, whose death in action, was cabled last week, had only jusi attained his twenty-first birthday. Mis coming-ot age early Li September was to be an occasion of great festivities at Pol kemmet, his big estate in Linlithgow shire, but war broke out, and the young baronet left with his regiment (the Scots Greys), which was one of the first to be in France, and instead of festivities there is mourning on all sides, His mother, Lady Baillie, was one of the beautiful daughters of the late Dr. David Wilkie, of Mel bourne, and Sir Gawaine was born in Melbourne. His only brother, Adrian, who is still at Eton, succeeds to the baronetcy. Daisy Jerome wears two beautiful lace dresses during her turn at the Bijou, one, I understand, cost much more than the majority of women's iwhole year's wardrobe—over two hundred pounds. But when one is receiving that as a weekly salary one can splash a bit, you know. There is a very up-to-date idea a...
